Day Eleven of the Twelve Days of Christmas Meditations

On the Eleventh Day of Christmas...

Welcome to DAY ELEVEN of our 
Twelve Days of Christmas Meditations 

WE LIGHT. “We light this candle as a reminder of the Christ that is Light within ALL of us”

WE SIT. SOMETIMES WE DANCE. In a circle, prayer hands or not, open hands or not, holding hands in a circle could work. You can try some bowing and “Namaste”. Namaste translates into “The light in me bows to the light in you”, for me this means “the Christ in me acknowledges the Christ in you.”

WE SING. Amy Grant's Breath Of Heaven(Mary's Song). You can listen through the Spotify player at top left of page. ;)


The truth is God is ALWAYS with us, Christ IS the Breath of Heaven, breathing AS us.

"I am waiting in a silent prayer.
I am frightened by the load I bear.
In a world as cold as stone,
Must I walk this path alone?
Be with me now.
Be with me now.

Breath of heaven,
Hold me together,
Be forever near me,
Breath of heaven.

Breath of heaven,
Lighten my darkness,
Pour over me your holiness,
For you are holy.
Breath of Heaven."

What load are you carrying on your own, without asking Spirit for help?? What things have you been trying to do/fix/solve/create single-handedly, on your terms, in your own way? How is that working out for you?? Now is the time to surrender the struggle. Surrender doesn't mean admitting defeat, it means we're no longer willing to struggle, push, and control life alone. It means inviting-in Spirit, it means making a way for a supernatural solution to the burden we've held so tight, for God can make a way out of no way. We don't have to walk this path alone, we simply invite God to be with us now. The truth is God is ALWAYS with us, Christ IS the Breath of Heaven, breathing AS us. We just need to remind ourselves of this reality. What burdens are you ready to hand over? Today is the day. Simply ask for intervention as you listen to this song. Give up doing it all on your own. Because you ask, it is done. Rejoice in the newfound lightness of your load. Amen!

If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer. Matthew 21:22

WE PRAY. You can try “God Our Father”, or any prayer of thanks here.

God Our Father(to tune of Where is Thumper)
God our Father
God our Father
Once Again
Once Again
Thank you for our blessings
Thank you for our blessings

Try a few “Thank you God for ____”, or "God Bless ____". 

WE BREATHE. Hilarious and Oh-so-fun for the littles. It's not so much about the OM as it is about creating a way for them to connect with their BREATH. Om is an ideal way to teach them to feel their breath. Deep breath in, and exhale OM{sounds like A U M}. Three times. No idea how to "Om"? Click here for the how, or just make up your own way!
